I walked into a mini-riot at an eco-protest in Berkeley, Calif., on September 6, 2008, and shot this picture of it. For the record, the guy on the ground clashed with cops and was tossed around and beaten. (If the bluriness creates a sense of being in the midst of the melee and being jostled, that's because I was!) [photo by Paul Iorio.]
